Nour News added groups hostile to the Islamic Republic of are abusing people’s pain and sadness over the death of Mahsa Amini to divert the protests and push them toward unrest.

The news website also said that the form and the content of the letter shows it was prepared awkwardly with the aim of disturbing public opinion.

The report said such hostile groups have in the past engaged in such acts to create insecurity land foment uproar in different cities.

Mahsa Amini’s death has led to street protests in many Iranian cities. She died while she was in police custody over failing to observe Islamic dress code.

Official investigations continue to determine the exact cause of the tragedy.
